nw15062 is on to something (for me). Disable "Super I/O Clock Skew" and put the WiGig card in a PCI slot you can explicitly set to X1 bandwidth, Gen 3 mode. I haven't verified that each of these steps is necessary, but I shotgunned all three changes to my system and
everything works now (edit it becomes playable. It still BSODs.
Here's the message I sent to support today:
I'm deviating a bit from the instructions because I believe it's been fixed (I've gotten in an hour of play time with several games and no issues).
Previously, the WiGig card was plugged into the slot PCIEX1_1 on the Asus ROG Crosshair 6 Hero, nearest to the CPU:
This seemed to be in accordance with the suggestion in the manual. I left the BIOS untouched. This resulted in crashing at various times -- sometimes right when starting SteamVR, other times at the beginning of games, other times 10 minutes in.
Earlier today, Reddit user u/nw15062 made this suggestion to me:
"Explicitly assign the pcie slot to 1x mode and disable super I/o skewing in the bios under advanced> onboard device configuration."
I moved the card to PCIEX4_3, which I then manually assigned to X1 bandwidth and GEN3 mode, and disabled Super I/O Clock Skew. Now I'm up and running. I would like to test these variables independently -- I wonder if the clock skew disable is enough to fix it since the DPC Watchdog Violation is, in general, a timeout error.

Youre def onto something there, sad thing for me is that my bios doesnt have anyway to manually assign individual slots to anything

Same thing with mine. I don't have anyway to manually assign individual slots to anything either. I have a asus tuf b350m-plus gaming.

My MSIC X399 gaming pro carbon mobo will let me assign but tweaking anything in there seems to keep it from posting.
I also dont have the option for 1x only 4, 8, 16 depending on the slots. Tried setting all to 4x with the exception of the GPU and it wont post so thinking thats not the solution.

Stop code: DCP_WATCHCODE_VIOLATION
Sometimes just a freeze without BSOD
Ryzen 7 2700x
32GB Trident Z RGB
Gigabyte X470 Aorus 7 Wifi Revision 1 Motherboard BIOS ver F4
EVGA 1070 SC
AsRock Rx 580 8GB
[GTX Card was card for gaming monitor and VR when wired, Rx card is for my spare monitors, needed ports and VRAM]
XPG 960 NVMe SSD 3x4
Fresh install of windows 10 64bit build 1803 updated.
All overclocks were removed and bios settings were reset to defaults.
Crashes occur regardless of the GPU config, I have tried removing one, and then using the other. Doing multimonitor accross both, multimonitor on a single card, or single monitor on a single card. It seems that it prolongs uptime but I eventually crash. If I have the headset connected without steam VR open, it takes longer to crash, but eventually still does.

Adding my setup:
Motherboard: Gigabyte ax370 Gaming K7
CPU: Ryzen 1700x
RAM: Trident Z RGB 16gb cl14
GPU: Gigabyte Vega 64 8GB
SSD: Crucial Nvme 500gb
Capture Card: Avermedia Live Gamer HD 2
Tried all PCI-E slots. When the computer doesnt hard lock, it gives BSOD, same DPC Watchdog Violation as previous posters.

Same issues as most here. In general I can get the wireless adapter to work for 5-10 mins before either A) getting a blue screen that lasts for a few seconds then the game comes back or B) gettting a blue screen that completely locks up my pc and requires a hard restart. When it is working the image is laggy, compressed and pixelated and makes me really nauseous. Spoke with customer service last night and they said no eta on a fix so I just switched back to the wire last bc the adapter renders the system pretty much unplayable.

Just as a quick update:
In addition to setting the PCI slots to explicit 1X / Gen3, I have clocked the CPU down to 3.5Ghz and the RAM to 2400Mhz. In this configuration, I can't get it to crash.
That's unfortunate some mobos don't have the option to explicitly set those speeds on PCI slots. C6H is X370.

Welp I cannot believe that theres still nothing official on this its been over a week since launch. Absolutely pathetic.

I just got my Vive Wireless adapter today and just set it up. I also have a Ryzen CPU. I don't get the BSOD, but Beat Saber just freezes partway through a song. The PC screen is okay, but the Vive Pro HMD just goes gray or black. I don't seem to be able to ctrl-alt-del or anything, have to reboot the PC. Is this the same problem? Pretty gorram frustrating.

Agreed, I put my notes back on page 2 and it's running great on my Threadripper 1950x with the card installed in the second PCI-E x16 slot on my motherboard (running at x8). Motherboard is Gigabyte x399 Aorus Xtreme, never had any issues but I saw this popping up on reddit for others.
